David Einhorn is once again competing in the World Series of Poker Championship in Las Vegas. He is set to play in the One Drop High Roller tournament. Last year, he finished at third place and won $4.35 million which he donated to CityYear. The organization works to ensure that  students finish high school, and attempts to reduce the dropout rate. Last year, the tournament had 48 entrants, a number which has almost tripled this year with 122 entrants that have so far registered. David Einhorn will donate all his winnings to Playworks this year, a non profit organization which is working to transform schools and provide healthy physical activities and reduce bullying in schools.
